Types of treatment .....

NHSPrivateRetainersInvisalign (Private)Tooth Whitening (Private)
NHS
Most orthodontic treatment can be carried out on the NHS for patients under 18 years of age. However, since April 2006 government regulations have restricted NHS orthodontic treatment to those cases considered to have a moderate to severe need for treatment, as assessed by the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need.
All of our NHS treatment is carried out to a very high standard. However, there are limitations for NHS treatment
1) Longer waiting time before treatment can be started
2) Most appointments will be during school hours
3) Limited choice of the type of braces used

Private
For patients who do not meet the criteria for NHS treatment or for patients who wish to start treatment sooner, we can offer the option of private treatment.
The advantages of private treatment are:
1) No waiting list for treatment
2) More flexible appointments (after school, early morning or evening appointments available)
3) Wider choice of braces (i.e. cosmetic or invisible braces) and the latest ‘time saving’ braces to reduce treatment time and improve patient comfort
4) All treatment is carried out by a specialist Orthodontist to ensure continuity of care
5) Treatment will be carried out in our new 'state of the art' private suite.
